last man standing

The phrase "last man standing" seems to refer to drinking where the last person left standing is the one least drunk. 

Not at all what I have come to grasp from this phrase. 

I have come to think that in a battle, be it a battle of drinking or shooting or war or as illustrated here, in life, that the last man standing wins. 

I guess I am confused by this, there will not ever be a last man standing and on this I think we can all agree. 

We will all be left to disintegrate into the earth. 

What WILL matter?

Will it be the items I have collected?

Will it be the fame I have attempted to obtain, the recognition?

Will it be the contributions I have made to humankind?

Or, will it be, the love that I have given my brothers and sisters that carries onward?

When I am gone and buried I hope it is love I have left, for in truth that is all I really have.

I guess what I mean to say is this- "if I have prophetic powers, and understanding all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing." The bible (God's living word)
